RIC FLAIR has hinted at another shock wrestling comeback at the age of 73 after revealing: “Never say never.”
The Nature Boy recently celebrated victory in a bout dubbed his “Last Match Ever” as he joined forces with Andrade El Idolo to beat Jay Lethal and Jeff Jarrett in Nashville.
Flair said that he passed out twice from dehydration during the event and that he had plantar fasciitis in the lead-up to his bout.
The WWE Hall of Famer has also battled a number of health issues in recent years.
But now the 16-time world champion has said he is back in training for yet another comeback after being inspired by Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat’s upcoming return at the age of 69.
When quizzed by TMZ Sports about another match, Flair said: “I don’t know.
“I’ve already promised [I was done] once. Right now, I’m not doing anything.
“But, never say never.”
Flair’s legendary career began all the way back in 1972 on the now-defunct American Wrestling Association.
But the Tennessee Titan is perhaps best known for his respective stints in WCW and the WWE.
Flair’s third stint in the WWE came to an end last summer when he asked Vince McMahon to grant him his release.
During a recent appearance on Renee Paquette’s Oral Sessions podcast, he recalled: “What happened was, I had a bunch of pending opportunities.
“I had a bunch of things that I was doing currently, at the time, when I signed my contract.
“A couple of deals kept coming along that it got to the point where I was asking them – I think I probably exhausted them [by] asking – not to grandfather me in, but to let me do them.
“And then, of course, the answer was ‘You could do them, maybe.’ I thought of what I was going to say to you today and how I’m gonna handle this.
“I just decided that I wanted to finally, which I did for three years, make a living not being under a wrestling payroll. That’s all it was.
“There was no animosity whatsoever. It was just business. I wanted to try something and they just had a different vision.
“[WWE wanted me] to just get paid, basically. A lot of money. Nothing was wrong with that.”
